A spokesperson for Zimbabwe’s ruling party says the inauguration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa will be on Sunday after the constitutional court upheld his election win.

Paul Mangwana says the daylong event at the National Sports Stadium in the capital, Harare, will begin at 10:00.

Mnangagwa has spoken to the nation on state television and called for calm. He also declared that the July 30 election was the most transparent and credible the country ever had.

This was the first election after the end of Robert Mugabe’s 37-year rule, which was marked by rigged elections.
